Guess what stanc3, I voted for Max

If you have a problem with the threads Max made, you must also have a problem with some of the other people who also made threads on other forums asking for votes. I can link them, but don't want to wreck this thread anymore than it already has been.
Even if he posted up on say bf.c and asked for votes in OT, that doesn't mean all those people are going to vote for him, they might just go on and see a car they like better and vote for that one.

All in all, this type of stuff shouldn't be polluting this thread, WP was nice enough to do this and i think its awesome that they're doing it. All cars are deserving of this.

If threads are made on other forums linking to this thread, I'd have to say it helps out WP since more people see their name.

If you don't have anything nice to say, leave the thread alone!

I think that STANC3 made it better for MAX to win. Thanks STANC3. CONGRATS again MAX.

I kind of have to agree. I kind of think stanc3's negative comments made undecided voters want vote for max. I think most people understand that EVERYONE was getting outside help, so it was kind of hypocritical to jump on the guy at the top.

Anyways now that the contest is over lets get back to modding. Congrats to xphantom. And jun still has my fav M3 on the boards. he's also one of my fav forum personalities haha.

thanks for putting me out of my misery, this def dragged on way too long. i'd like to think most of the participants were behind the eight ball from the get-go, but i guess i'll never know.

with that said, congrats to Max and thanks again to Sam & WPPro for this generous promotion.

edit: and thanks for all that voted for me, <3 u.

@ Sam/WPPro ---

Your calipers look good, sure. But how can you possibly be running 8, 10, 12 piston calipers with an obvious increase in piston area (and volume) with stock master cylinders? I see all these brake kits listed with like 8 piston, 10 piston, 12 piston and such but I see no mention of master cylinder upgrades. I have driven a version of my car with a 4 piston Brembo setup and noticed a distinctive short coming in the MC department. When I designed my own BBK using Wilwood SL6R14 6 piston calipers for my E34, I was careful in choosing it because I did not want to increase my volume too much and sacrifice pedal response/feel - I succeeded. But, even if using your 8 piston+ kits with (assuming) 1.10 - 1.12" pistons, you're going to severely sacrifice valving within the MC, no? I mean, I really expect you to say "No, pedal feel is good" - so its not meant as a yes/no question really.

Further - I have seen some of your kits. Somewhat surprising that the calipers chosen often do not follow the arc of the rotor or hat very well - any reason you don't focus more on proper sizing? I saw an E39 kit with what seemed like maybe .005" of rotor on the outside that was not being contacted - wasted torque arm leverage! Futher, I was disappointed to see what I believe were cast iron adapters! I would personally expect a billet adapter or at least a CNC steel piece. Correct me if I am wrong, but they looked like cast iron. Where is the casting done? Please don't say China!


Also - Max, congrats I suppose. I don't like how you did this. I could technically use one of our 1024 IP addresses at work and make a bunch of e-mail accounts and my votes would look like they're coming from all over the nation. Kind of weak. Granted you didn't do this, but I bet I could heard in several hundred friends and family and people online to vote for me if I were in the running. That's not really fair. Congrats but I don't like the method used.

pretty fair if you ask me.. there were no rules.. WP Pro should have made the poll public and required a minimum post count to vote... but then again, that'd limit the publicity they'd get

u do what u gotta do, especially for a free $6k

anyway, congrats to xPhantom, cant wait to see it installed

For those who are still B itching about who won, I'll save you all the trouble and show you an actual picture of someone beating a dead horse...



There should be no one wondering what that is now.

You're still picking. One day you going to need people to vote for you, and everyone is going to remember this.
